Ask A Friend

Not surprisingly, the presidential election permeated every aspect of our lives in the weeks leading up to it. Students shirked their homework to phone-bank, canvass or just watch hilarious videos of Tina Fey dressed up as Sarah Palin. Alice Zhao '12's recent column ("Red States, Blue States," Nov. 14) certainly reflects the level of activity and involvement that we have in our political system. Anybody looking outside their window on campus right after the results were announced would attest to this: Hordes of Obama supporters screamed and ran over the sidewalks that they had chalked with political messages just hours earlier.

The Freshman Column

(11/19/08 9:53am)

The other day, while waiting in line for my ham, egg and cheese sandwich in Collis, I overheard some upperclassmen discussing an Opinion column in The Dartmouth. "This is why they shouldn't let freshmen write for The D," one concluded. I received a particularly scathing piece of hate mail earlier this term from an alumnus who explained the system to me: "The only reason freshmen write columns for The D is so that the whole campus can get a laugh." Others, I have heard, check the class of the writer before they even bother reading the article.

Jamal Brown '08 was featured by the gay periodical Out Magazine as one of the "Men and Women Who Made 2008 a Year to Remember." Brown was recognized as a gay man who "moved culture" in the past year, according to the magazine's web site. While competing as a sprinter for Dartmouth, Brown was "a recognized leader" on the Dartmouth track team, representing Dartmouth at the 2007 NCAA Leadership Conference, according to the article. That same year, Brown helped organize the first annual PRIDE gay awareness week at the College, according to a previous article in The Dartmouth. Brown is now working in Boston, Mass., as a legal assistant at the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders and plans to run competitively at the 2010 Gay Games in Cologne, Germany.

The Children's Hospital at Dartmouth and Dartmouth Medical School collaborated on a new web site,, to teach girls between the ages of 8 and 11 about the dangers of smoking.

Williams '79 describes memorial for 9/11

(11/18/08 8:32am)

The construction of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center, a process characterized by "angst, frustration, lack of candor and absurdity," is being stalled by the competing objectives of the numerous parties involved, David Williams '79, the project manager, said in a lecture on Monday in Collis Center room 101. He attributed the significant delay to a lack of agreement among those involved regarding the relative importance of different components of the memorial.

Abstinence (Higher) Education

(11/18/08 8:18am)

Last week, two events about sex and sexuality took place at Dartmouth. Chabad sponsored a lecture by Dr. Miriam Grossman, author of the book "Unprotected: A Campus Psychiatrist Reveals How Political Correctness in her Profession Endangers Every Student" ('Speaker warns women against casual sex," Nov. 11). Meanwhile, the Aquinas House hosted a panel discussion on the Catholic Church's position on sexuality entitled "The Joy of Sex."

I Scream, You Scream

If you asked me how many times per week I visit Food Court specifically to scope out the frozen yogurt sundae bar, I would probably lie rather than admit how often I tell the FoCo cashier, "Just toppings!" But seriously, there was no better place than FoCo to satisfy a candy craving -- until this fall. Many students are overcome by frustration and anger at the replacement of the open plastic containers with those closed, gumball machine-esque plastic monstrosities.
